提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
But the Christians were getting hungry for power and territory and provoked by the rise of Islamic militacy.They decided to crusay against the infidel.
And so the re-conquest began a crusay that was to last for more than 400 years,a monumentally long and bloody campaign.This conflict would establish a percularly fervent form of policisim,as the Spanish national religion was also the conflict of which modern Spain would emerge.
During the 12th century,the Christians painfully edged into Al Andalus,and one by one the Islamic city is fell.Then Sevill itself was captured in 1248 after two years' siege.
The Christians conquerors of medieval Sevill proclaimed let us creat such a building a future generation will take us for lanatics.Some statements of intent.So they demolished the great mosque,they put up its place what Guiness Book of Records tells me it is still a single largest Christian cathedral in the world.A great,crushing symbol of the truimph for military Christianity.
The cathedral was built in a north European style,gothic in design,completed in high vaulting ceiling,flying buttresses and Christian's symbols everywhere.
This might be the last place you don't expect to find traces of Islamic design.But if you look closely enough,it become clear that old habits die hard.
What is extraordinary about the gothic style as done by the Spanish,especially the Spanish in the south,is,this is an incredible sense of overdecoration.I mean,look at this alter piece.
